In this step you need to choose:
  1. PHP version to use: should use PHP 7.1, has 3 times the performance compared to the old version 5.6.
  2. The main domain name used with VPS, can be imported with www or without www depending on the purpose of use, the script will automatically redirect to you.
  3. Port admin server management: is a secret port (located in the range 2000-9999, changed after installing) used to:
    – Access the admin link, in the form of: http // port /
    – Using phpMyAdmin, link form:
    – Manage File Manager, link form:
    – Monitor system status, link form:
    – Track the status of Zend Opcache, link form:

Then, just let the script automatically perform the installation process, which can take 3-5 minutes depending on VPS / Server configuration and network.
